in terms of a step forward. we are now elected lgbt peep to office and harvey was such an incredible trail blazer, not? in just getting elected, but in being a great leader and always holding his head high for our community. and i know when i was first sworn into office, one of the things that i always kept in mind was something that i understand harvey to have said, * that when you go into city hall, you walk up the central staircase. you don't walk on one of the side staircases because for our community, it is so important for us to walk up that central staircase and for us to be in the middle of everything and for everyone to know that we are here. and all these years later, we've made a lot of strides in the lgbt community, but we still have so much work to do around hiv issues, around our youth, around discrimination, around transinclusion, and all the things that we know that harvey had he been here today would still be working on and leading on. and, so, we have to keep doing our work. and frankly, we can't take for granted that queer people are going to keep getting elected to off

more dancing on a high rope in the middle east. with free elections the biggest crocodile of them all, the muslim brotherhood, took over realizing our worst fierce. the new president, mohamed morsi installed like-minded supporters and created an islamist state. and then in a reversal of fate the egyptian armies removed and locked up morsi. then last week the military regime released mubarak, and now anything can happen. that sense of deja vu you may have watching the bodies pile up on your tv screen is understandable. despite the obama administration's attempt to mince words, the egyptian security forces killed well over a thousand of their country men and imprisoning a thousand more. america's substantial military and economic aide to egypt is a topic for editorial writers. the argument comes to, do we take the high moral road and cut them off, proving our disapproval of tyrants even though we supported them in the past? or do we continue to send military hardware to the army as they unforce their brutal crackdown? once more america finds itself dancing on a high tightrope in the mid
